We have lots of information to catch up on! I kept meaning to blog the last week or so, but I seemed to always find something--always in my sewing room--to do instead. So here goes.....
Anne and Mark Emert think it is a big deal. Sam, their 3 month old, had a respiratory infection. Anne said the quilt provided them so much comfort during such a difficult time. They appreciated the support and care we provided.
I received a very touching note from Rebecca. Her 6 year old daughter, Carlee, was hospitalized. The nurses brought in a "beautiful quilt and Carlee ooohed and aaawed at the butterflies and designs she thought were snails". Rebecca said, "Your beautiful handiwork will be taken care of with great care and tenderness as we will be taking it with Carlee to Children's Mercy later for she is to have heart surgery. Thank you for a gift of unconditional love and bless you for your kindness."
What's a day without a yellow quilt?
Look at the gorgeous quilting!
Dr. Suess on the loose!!
A great red stripe backing with red, black and white dots for the binding.
Turquoise print with race cars. Perfect for a little guyl Of course I love the binding--it's yellow.
What makes this quilt great is that it is made with some leftover blocks from another quilt. Sandy added some "string pieced blocks" and came up with a winner.
When she finished pieced the top, she did a beautiful job quilting it.
Her backing has different colored trains with a track running around them.
Have you ever started a project and then at some point lost interest before it was finished? Haven't we all? This is one project none of us have lost interest in. And we are far from finished. Making a difference and giving unconditional love is something you don't lose interest in and you certainly never finish. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Please remember all those who have sacrificed for us this Memorial Weekend.
